Take 5: Digital productivity for researchers – short, facilitated, self-study courses for PGRs on Canvas

This is an online course, running from Monday 13th to Friday 17th March 2023.

In this short online course, running from Monday to Friday, we will be exploring and learning together with lots of opportunities for you to try tools that look interesting to you. Members of the Educational Enhancement team will be on call to answer questions, contribute to discussions and try out things with you. It’s up to you when you engage with the course and how much time you spend on it, but you should be able to cover the basics in 30 minutes a day.

Course outline

The course gives us an opportunity to look at how digital technologies and services can support us to work in more efficient, dynamic and connected ways. Many of the approaches and tools we will explore can be used for personal/domestic activities as well as work and study.

This is the plan, but conversations will inevitably overlap and crossover days.

  • Monday – Teamworking with Microsoft Teams
  • Tuesday – Communication and collaboration
  • Wednesday – Managing and organising tasks
  • Thursday – Notemaking
  • Friday – Reflection, tips and tricks

Take 5 online bitesized courses are short, facilitated, self-study courses. Hosted on Canvas, the courses are designed for those who may be too busy to attend a one or two hour workshop – each day of the course can be completed during a lunch break or spare time. Each course is split into five ‘bitesize’ pieces – one a day Monday to Friday. Each day builds your understanding to give you a solid foundation. Members of the Educational Enhancement Team will be available throughout the courses should you have any questions or wish to learn more about any of the topics.
